Face of FoodThursday, December 09, 2010
Accidentally stumbled into this gallery (couldn't resist the food imagery), I ended up talking to the artists and found out the concept and enjoyed sharing ideas about food and culture.
Artists: Choi mi yeon (최미연)
Graduation exhibition titled: Face of Food
Concept/theme: Using food as a base to observer, comment, reflect on herself and of others around her.
Not to get too art geeky, but one of the most powerful things anyone from any culture and background can understand and personally relate to are taste. From the moment we are conscious we harbor and personalize these flavors into preferences. With that as a common denominator, she investigates people and different personalities that are showcased through these preferences.
I won't go into anymore detail, but if you are interested in seeing more of her work, please take a look at her blog and I believe she is going to have another show in the Spring. Stay tuned. blog.naver.com/myfood1210

She documented what each food sounds like when eaten and organized them by color and texture.
